01:56:11binaryhermitwhat are the odds that the ongoing font shakeup will completely foul up themes like the WPS changes did?
01:57:25rasherbinaryhermit: about 100%, but it's an even easier thing to fix
01:57:53 Part toffe82
01:57:57binaryhermitstill, I question doing it during a feature freeze
01:58:14binaryhermitunless I underestimate the problems leaving it as it is would cause
01:58:35rasherbinaryhermit: This was discussed at length yesterday
01:59:04binaryhermitand if I don't like it, I can fork, right?
01:59:12*binaryhermit goes back to read the log
01:59:20 Join fdinel [0] (
01:59:35rasherWell, a bunch of people who usually make smart decisions decided this was smarter
02:00:24LloreanNew version numbers are the best time to do font shakeups like this. Then you can say "All themes must be updated to work with 3.0" rather than "all themes from sometime around the middle of Month X are unlikely to work"
02:00:30*amiconn might even try to fix the themes in the wiki, but not today
02:00:32LloreanEr, any sort of shakeup, font or otherwise
02:00:56saratogajhMikeS: I can't get it to work with mp3 when using 2 cores, although playback has been rock solid for the last few days
02:01:09saratogaso i was wondering if there were any special considerations
02:01:29binaryhermitanyone know where rbutil pulls the font info from?
02:01:36Lloreanbinaryhermit: Well, look at it this way: Each development period leads toward a version number. So either the font shakeup happens in 3.0, or in 3.1. Does it make a difference which one it happens in?
02:03:53pixelmamaybe someone (with the rights) could start a thread in the announcement forums?
02:04:43Lloreanpixelma: You can't make announcements?
02:05:19pixelmahmm... haven't tried but I thought only developers, moderators and admins could
02:06:00LloreanWell, now experts can too. They really ought to be able to, anyway.
02:06:37*Llorean isn't sure what such a thread would exactly be about yet anyway.
02:06:46pixelmaheh... and now I need to? I'm not much af a thread starter

02:07:09HillshumWhat could be making Twiki look like this?
02:07:16jhMikeSsaratoga: you seemed to incoporate a non-blocking, thus non-coresleeping approach in the last patch I saw. SPC uses the semaphores to allow blocking.
02:08:35krazykitHillshum, i don't see that problem.
02:09:01Lloreanpixelma: Is the font cleanup finished yet?
02:09:11kugelThanks that the font cleanup happened before 3.0
02:09:18Hillshumkrazykit: notice the color/readability of the links
02:10:09krazykitare you sure that's not your firefox/windows theme or something? because that same page looks correct to me: blue links and completely readable.
02:10:12pixelmaLlorean: I'm not sure myself, amiconn should know better but I think a great deal is done
02:10:20saratogajhMikeS: i tried using semaphores but couldn't figure out how to do it without getting invalid instruction errors
02:10:29amiconnYes it is done now
02:10:37saratogawhat is the difference between using the built in semapores and using my homemade ones + yeild?
02:10:41LloreanDo we have a list of oldname -> newname?
02:10:57amiconn(Well, the part that involves svn. Themes in the wiki still need fixing
02:11:02amiconnLlorean: fonts/README
02:11:14Hillshumkrazykit: did you see that screenshot? I see light colored links that i can barely read.
02:11:33jhMikeSsaratoga: that seems a strange symptom from that unless cache handling was the culprit in something
02:11:48rasheramiconn: nice job on the cleanup
02:12:12Hillshumkrazykit: Try this link:
02:12:45saratogajhMikeS: so if I want to use test_codec I should try and use semaphores?
02:13:27krazykitHillshum, yes, i saw the screenshot. i browsed to the very same page and it looks /just fine/
02:13:27jhMikeSsaratoga: shouldn't matter but running the codec in that environment instead could change timings of threads and so evidence a race condition
02:14:01kugelAre you planning to remove the themes in the WpsGalleries/block them from being downloaded until they're updated?
02:14:06amiconnHillshum, krazykit: It looks like the problem is that sets no styles for link colours, so you'll get whatever is set in the browser
02:14:19HillshumRight. I am saying, when I go to the page, I can't read the links.
02:14:34kugelI fear users will try to re- and redownload themes again and again, in the hope this fixes the themes
02:14:55HillshumAll other links look normal.
02:15:22rasherHillshum: Using any sort of crazy stuff such as greasemonkey/platypus or other stuff that might meddle with pages before rendering?
02:16:06kugelwell, and it'll probably "fix" them most of the time, since most include their fonts
02:16:23Hillshumrasher: I installed ghostfox but then removed it ( following the documentation) and it left RB like that.
02:16:42 Quit nplus (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
02:16:46saratogajhMikeS: I've probably listened to 10 hours of music without ever having a single glitch or free, but test_codec freezes every single time
02:16:50saratogai don't think its a race condition
02:17:27amiconnHillshum: Options->Settings->Content->Colors (or sth like this, my Firefox is in German)
02:17:34saratogaelse i would expect it to occur at time depending on boost/buffering during playback
02:18:11amiconnBut imo should set link colours
02:18:45kugelamiconn: would you mind adding some nedore versions too (8 and 9 is a bit small), if it's possible? I like that font
02:18:56Hillshumamiconn: Thanks. I thought I had looked over that Settings box without any luck.

02:46:39amiconnDoesn't help dualcore mpa in test_codec
02:48:06jhMikeSsaratoga: the thread functions in the ci structure aren't initialized. I think that's probably why.
02:48:41saratogajhMikeS: how difficult would that be to fix?
02:49:18jhMikeSjust add inits for the stuff in the #if NUM_CORES block as in codec.c

03:06:25saratoga370% real time decoding for 128k MP3
03:08:38jhMikeSthe blocking stuff should be put in so it doesn't use 100% process load all the time. both cores will be doing a fair bit of waiting for the other.
03:09:07saratogajhMikeS: for now I just yeild, but I guess that just busy waits then?
03:09:17saratogahow do I make the core actually idle?
03:10:48jhMikeSsleep (but this fixes the delays), queue_wait, semaphore_wait, mutex_wait, etc. any non-signalled object will block and if no other thread is ready to run, the core waits for an interrupt or a singal

11:21:04Nico_Ponly branch-specific commits I'd say
11:21:25LloreanIdeally there should be none at all unless an honest showstopper crops up, things that are specific to the 3.0 process, or mistakes like that font naming thing he just pointed out.
11:21:27preglowthere's still a hang bug around, and i'm starting to think it's mp3 related
11:21:39B4gderok, now the version string says like normal but with an added "3.0 RC" string
11:21:42preglowhard to repro, though
11:21:49BigBambiscotty_007: Are you sure you haven't just got an old font zip from a non-updated mirror? They look OK in SVN to me:
11:21:52linuxstbDo we need to call it 3.0.0 - to allow minor updates?
11:22:01LloreanI think 3.0 is fine.
11:22:13LloreanIf we need 3.0.1, it doesn't mean we needed 3.0.0 first. :)
11:22:24B4gderI agree
11:22:41*linuxstb grumbles at the lack of logic ;)
11:23:06LloreanWell, hopefully nothing major enough to require 3.0.1 in the next three months will crop up, and then we can just do 3.1 like we did this one.
11:23:15*Nico_P sees exciting times ahead :)
11:23:19scotty_007BigBambi: patch file says Revision 18391

11:25:37pixelmathat's the part which is responsible to include the fonts used in the default theme in a normal build zip, quite important I think
11:25:55pixelmaif I remember correctly
11:26:08Nico_Pso the known bugs in 3.0 will be those in ?
11:27:31LloreanNico_P: Mostly, yes. That any any of the major "well, that feature isn't done yet" style issues like USB rebooting, etc.

13:11:41markunwe need one of those broken nanos..

13:12:10markunB4gder: well, unless we find another way to trigger DFU mode
13:12:23markunmaybe we 'just' have to pull out the USB cable during a firmware upgrade ;)
13:12:24mcuelenaereB4gder: I think markun refers to the iPod's in that link..
13:12:26B4gderaha, there's some special kind of brokeness that trigger it
13:12:37markunyes, I think so
13:12:50B4gderwould be interesting to figure that out...
13:13:02mcuelenaereperhaps the same with disconnecting the NAND like on the Sansa v2's?
13:13:38markunI found similar references to DFU modes of the Shuffle
13:14:15dionoeawhat does DFU stand for?
13:14:22markunmcuelenaere: yes, if there is no button combination
13:14:50mcuelenaeredo you think Apple implemented a button combination for triggering DFU mode?
13:15:09B4gderDa Firmware Update? ;-)
13:15:11markun"Device Firmware Upgrade"
13:15:15B4gderah device
13:15:25mcuelenaereif so, you should definitely post on the New Port thread
13:15:27dionoeamarkun: thanks.
13:16:06markunmcuelenaere: which thread?
13:16:18mcuelenaereisn't there an apple ipod nano 2g thread?
13:17:15funmanshorting I/O pins look like a generic way to disable a NAND
13:17:49dionoeataking a soldering iron and sticking it in the NAND chip sounds generic too :)
13:17:57dionoea(although you can't re-enable it afterwards)
13:18:45swimmerhmm - and it seems that USB charging is not working on my Ipod 5.5g 80 GB with yesterday's revision ...
13:20:42markunmcuelenaere: btw, some versions of the chip have 1MB NAND inside the same package as the SoC, so no way to desolder it.
13:20:55mcuelenaereand short cutting it?
13:21:04mcuelenaereeh shorting
13:21:14markunbut I guess this is not the case with the nano since they were able to dump the firmware with a flash reader.
13:24:08markunmcuelenaere: clear enough?
13:24:51mcuelenaeremarkun: thx :)

13:58:36GodEaterB4gder: on the iphone, DFU is triggered by a sequence of button pushes for a discrete length of time
13:59:18GodEateryou phone must be off, but attached via USB to the PC. Then you hold the power and "home" buttons for 10 seconds. At the ten second mark, you release the power button, but keep the "home" button pressed for another 10 seconds.
13:59:54GodEaterat the end of that process, the phone enters DFU mode (the only way to tell is windows will tell you a USB DFU device has connected)

14:00:46GodEaterthough be warned - it'll likely wipe your music out

14:01:28markunGodEater: for the Meizu you need to hold M and POWER, then plug in the cable
14:02:14GodEaterno fiddly timing then ?
14:02:46markunno, not really
14:02:51pixelmaswimmer: but I'm still curious what you mean with "Rockbox switches to USB charging mode", how you enter it and what you see on the screen then
14:03:45ruskieGodEater, I can easily get my music back :)
14:03:54ruskieI'm more worried if it'll brick
14:04:30GodEaterruskie: in our experience, ipods are incredibly hard to brick
14:04:39*pixelma thinks that 2nd gen Shuffles don't make a nice brick ;)
14:04:46swimmerpixelma: ipod w/ rockbox is already running & I plug in the connector & rockbox displays a connector icon (?) & after that the display mode changes to sth very simply regardless the theme with a big blinking circle + the text "Do not disconnect." underneath
14:04:58swimmerpixelma: more details? ;-)
14:05:04*mcuelenaere recognizes the StMp3Rec driver from somewhere when installing that iPod reset utility..
14:05:06ruskieGodEater, ow?
14:05:14GodEaterswimmer: that's not usb charging mode
14:05:15markunruskie: is it possible to do a firmware upgrade?
14:05:18ruskiebtw any way to recognise DFU mode on linux?
14:05:39ruskiemarkun, no clue... this hasn't touched a win system or itunes in over a year
14:05:40GodEaterruskie: yes - the usb id will change in lsusb from what you usually see when the ipod is connected
14:05:46swimmerGodEater: I was already afraid that I am using the wrong terminology :-/
14:05:58GodEaterswimmer: that's apple's "disk mode"
14:06:11swimmerGodEater: good to know
14:06:12markunin FreeBSD you also see that a DFU device is connected with dmesg
14:06:24GodEaterprobably that too in linux
14:06:40*GodEater isn't keen to do it with his phone just to check as it takes 10 minutes to restore and I'd have to download a load of stuff again
14:06:43swimmerpixelma: rockbox switches to Apple's "disk mode" if I plug in the usb connector while charging ;-)
14:06:54 Quit tvelocity (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
14:07:07pixelmaswimmer: the "simple screen" you see is Apples disk mode and then it should charge correctly. But sometimes this automatic reboot into this doesn't work correctly and it'll stay at the Rockbox USB screen (the plug you see)
14:07:13GodEaterswimmer: this is if you connect it to a PC, or you're using a wall charger ?
14:07:39swimmerGodEater: via PC - wall charger works just fine
14:07:40*B4gder summed up the dfu news in a blog post
14:08:55GodEaterswimmer: and what happens if you hold down "Menu" when you plug in the USB cable ?
14:08:55swimmerpixelma: can it be that the charging works correctly until the battery is fully charged and the charging stops but disk mode keeps running and consumes energy?

14:09:18markunB4gder: great! Might get more people motivated.
14:09:19swimmerGodEater: rockbox keeps running and I get a small icon notifying me that it's charging
14:09:36swimmerGodEater: but let me just verify what I'm writing ...

14:10:58GodEatermarkun: this is kind of moot though isn't it? We'd still need apple's keys to run code using this...
14:11:01markunbut it has a differen SoC I believe
14:11:13markunGodEater: do we?
14:11:23B4gdernot if we can access the chip directly over DFU
14:11:27swimmerGodEater: check - Rockbox Info gives me "Battery charging" ....
14:11:55markunGodEater: if we want to flash it then yes, but maybe we can dump the internal ROM this way where the key is hopefully stored.
14:12:36markunflashing the backlight for every bit and using a photo resistor
14:12:52GodEatergood god, that doesn't sound like fun
14:13:11GodEaterwhat code is going to do the flashing if we can't run our own though ?
14:13:14markunGodEater: the original ipod was hacked in a similar way but using the piezo :)
14:13:25GodEatermarkun: that was the 3G wasn't it ?
14:13:32markuncould be
14:13:56GodEaterthat still doesn't answer my question though :)
14:13:58markuna flashing LED is used to dump firmwares of Canon cameras
14:14:27markunGodEater: so you think we would have to encrypt the code we send over DFU to the RAM as well?

14:16:09markunI hope we don't break anything by just trying a few pins :)
14:16:12*ruskie wonders about how other iPods go into the DFU mode...
14:16:25GodEaterruskie: older ipods don't have one
14:16:45markunand the newer ones wait for a key combo
14:16:52GodEaterthey have the emergency disk mode - that was all we needed

14:29:51Nico_Plooks like a security hole from apple's point of view

14:30:50 Quit petur ("here today, gone tomorrow")
14:31:11Nico_PGodEater: are there sources available that describe that hack?
14:31:21Nico_Pnot source code I mean
14:31:43GodEaterNico_P: no - that's what I'm trying to find
14:31:56GodEaterthe "iphone-dev team" think it's better to keep it a secret
14:32:16Nico_Pthat's a pity, and a bit strange
14:32:26GodEaterI think so too
14:32:35GodEaterthe iphone hacking community is pretty horrible really
14:32:42GodEaterthey don't believe in OSS at all really
14:32:46Nico_Pthat was my impression
14:33:03ruskiewell I'm guessing if they actually revealed the hack it would just make it so that appl would easily patch it up again
14:33:08GodEaterthey're very teenage "you st0le my c0de - you suck!"
14:33:10funman_them buying Apple hardware just proves that fact
14:33:12ruskiewell the windows community tends to be the same
14:33:22GodEaterruskie: if they're to be believed - that's not possible
14:33:29GodEaterApple would have to recall the phones and modify the hardware
14:33:39GodEaterbut that's conjecture since they won't reveal how it's done
14:33:58linuxstbSo we need another group of hackers to hack the hack?
14:33:58Nico_Pthey seem to consider themselves 1337 hackers that are too cool to share their secrets

15:15:12GodEatermarkun: it looks like the xpwn stuff uses the dfu-util code from the openmoko project - which hopefully means that apple's DFU device side stuff plays nice with the standard.
15:15:49markunGodEater: my bet is that the code was supplied by Samsung
15:16:00GodEatervery possibly
15:16:33markunwhich would mean that it doesn't play nicely and our meizu tool has a better chance of working

17:35:59aaron23Hi all, I have rockbox installed on a 4th gen 20gb ipod.
17:37:07aaron23When I try to play files I have recorded using my ipod, the player does not "play". Further, after I've tried to play one of those files, it will not play any other file on the ipod until I reboot and reinitialize. Ideas?
17:37:21linuxstbThat's a known problem.
17:37:36linuxstbplayback is broken after recording until you reboot.
17:37:42linuxstb(on some ipods only)
17:38:01aaron23So I can reboot and it ought to playback recorded files?
17:38:13amiconnThe cause is known, and btw, it looks like gain adjustment for recording also doesn't work
17:38:50aaron23OK. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't crazy.
17:39:07aaron23It starts thinking about things in 4 letters. All songs/files become 4 random letters.
17:39:37linuxstbI guess you transfer songs using itunes?
17:40:01aaron23Yes, but I don't have it keeping them organized. The files are not saved like that using itunes.

17:40:47mcuelenaerebut I think it's a good start
17:40:54BigBambiThat's why you need to use Rockbox's database if you transfer with itunes

17:41:15linuxstbI think it makes sense for Apple's purpose - i.e. to keep filenames short and unique in the database. (Apple's firmware never shows you the filenames). But yes, for Rockbox use it sucks.

17:41:38BigBambiaaron23: They all do it
17:42:03aaron23Ah, OK.
17:42:05BigBambiaaron23: If the other itunes replacement don't transfer to the ipod as itunes does, the ipod won't see them
17:42:12aaron23Well, guess what I don't see won't hurt me.
17:42:15linuxstbIf you don't want to use Apple's firmware, just drag and drop your folders of music to your ipod.
17:42:46aaron23Eh, I'll admit itunes has a serious edge for convenience.

17:44:35aaron23I suppose so - that's all in the file info for files.

18:49:39bertrikswimmer, yes you can compile a target-specific simulator on linux, also there's now a wps editor with a preview

18:49:56BigBambiThere is also a work in progress wps editor that is also for linux/win/mac
18:50:57swimmerbut nothing as a part of rbutil? then I could integrate it in the ebuild ;-)

18:59:25swimmerI see - so I just checkout the whole tree and compile in uisimulator?
18:59:51linuxstbNo, you checkout the whole tree, create a build directory, run ../tools/configure, then select your target device and "S" for simulator
19:00:11swimmerwould have been too nice ;-)
19:00:24linuxstbBut not very flexible
19:00:44*gevaerts has been thinking...
19:00:49linuxstbThere isn't a single UI simulator - you build one per target device.
19:01:18gevaertsWhy do we need to reverse engineer NAND wear leveling algorithms?
19:01:31 Join herrwaldo [0] (
19:01:57linuxstbBut yes, an option is to be incompatible with the original firmware.
19:02:02gevaertsWhich we also don't have on some supported players...

19:04:07*Hillshum agrees
19:05:19gevaertsSo I see the following options : (1) find out how the OF does things, (2) use JFFS2/YAFFS with MTP (/me hides), (3) use UDF, (4) use our own filesystem agnostic block device wear levelling algorithm

19:41:58gevaertsok. That changes things a bit :)
19:42:03amiconnshotofadds: "right now" being the important point
19:42:30*gevaerts would not be very motivated working on a usb driver knowing that it may never be useful anyway
19:43:56shotofaddsI wouldn't like to speculate about what "right now" means...

19:44:38shotofaddsalthough so is a card reader :)
19:44:42swimmerbut there is no keymapping for "Menu" - a workaround is toggling USB connect :)
19:45:03*gevaerts thinks the D2 makes an expensive card reader :)
19:47:05*shotofadds thinks that from read/write flash access, USB and SD support, SD should be the priority.
19:47:23gevaertsfor D2, sure. But there are other tcc players
19:47:49swimmerahh - ../uisimulator/sdl/button.c has some more ;-)

21:06:12wpyhso when it scrolls to the end, there is some space between the edge of the screen and the last word of the song name

21:38:55amiconnI doubt it. Do other MMCs work?
21:39:22miner49erI don't have another one.

21:46:48amiconnIt *seems* it's incompatible, but it could also be your card slot
21:47:02amiconnOf course this incompatibility should be fixable
21:47:07amiconn(if it is)
21:47:19pixelmaI think I once found a forum thread of someone having problems with a 4GB Transcend card too
21:47:42miner49erIs there anyway of finding out? Can I check out some details using my PC (with linux installed)
21:48:01miner49erI'll check the forum out, thank pixelm
21:48:39amiconnI don't think so. I don't know of any card readers that interface directly with the PC. The USB bridge in USB card readers hides all the interesting details
21:48:44miner49erCan the slot be damaged from inserting the card in the wrong way? I did that the first time...
21:49:09amiconnI don't think so, unless you applied excessive force
21:49:32pixelma but he geve the card back
21:49:48miner49erWell, it went in no trouble -does that suggest the slot is screwed?
21:50:08amiconnWell, in theory some cards could be fundamentally incompatible (technically: cards which don't support SPI mode), but then I haven't seen such cards yet
21:50:39amiconnminer49er: You can do another test: Connect the Ondio to the PC via USB, with the card removed first
21:50:52pixelmawhat I find weird is that I have a 1GB Transcend MMCplus and it works flawlessly
21:51:03amiconn..and rockbox running. The drive letter should show up in explorer (assuming windows)
21:51:52miner49errunning ubuntu
21:51:58amiconnThen plug the card. Windows should detect "removal" and replugging of an usb device in quick succession. Now check whether you can access the card in explorer
21:52:53amiconnHmm, it should work similar in linux, but I'm not sure how it reacts on surprise removal of usb storage (one of my biggest annoyances about linux)
21:54:04miner49erRight, after pluging in the Ondio, Ubuntu showed the 128Meg - fine. After slotting my MMC in, it then showed the 4Gig! So something recognising it :-)
21:54:08amiconnHmm, the forum thread pixelma pointed me to suggest that it's a software issue
21:54:52amiconnThe card should be recognised in the OF (but then the OF cannot access the files, because it's no prepared for large blocks)
21:55:16amiconnI could fix it, if I would have access to such a card...
21:55:46miner49erI'll send it you :-) It's useless to me and I can be doing 'my bit' for Rockbox!

22:05:31amiconnThere is no hardware tool that would be helpful with this kind of problem. It's basically plastering the driver code with debug output (to the LCD)

22:43:56jgsprengerhello channel
22:43:58pixelmabertrik: the statusbar one? I also found a similar one with the progressbar today but I'm not sure how similar that is
22:44:40jgsprengerWMA decoder appear to be broken...
22:44:55linuxstbSince when?
22:45:27jgsprengerusing current builds of RB on e280.... now *.wma sound sssslllllow
22:45:47linuxstbYes, but since when? i.e. did the same files work in the past?
22:45:56jgsprengerusing native firmware... no prob
22:46:19jgsprengermost of my files are mp3... so i dont know when it got broke
22:46:41linuxstbSo they did work in the past? Or you don't know if they ever worked in Rockbox?
22:46:42jgsprengerseems to be around early aug 2008
22:46:55jgsprengeryep they worked with previous versions
22:47:44jgsprengeri've been looking for a older version of RB maybe from march see if it will work
22:47:58bertrikamiconn, yes with the statusbar, it caused the wps to shift down:
22:48:40jgsprengerolder build rather
22:49:25amiconnbertrik: That seems to be slightly different (and should be fixed...)
22:49:43*amiconn also added fs#9361
22:49:45jgsprengeranyone have a link to older builds?
22:49:58BigBambijgsprenger: the couple of wma I have here seem to work fine
22:50:03linuxstbjgsprenger: Do you see any here?
22:50:17BigBambijgsprenger: What bitrate etc?
22:50:20jgsprengertried thru early aug
22:50:33linuxstbSome of the download mirrors keep older versions around (although I'm not sure if they still do, or how to access a specific mirror....)
22:50:34jgsprengeri'll check
22:51:45jgsprengeri've been stumped on this for a few weeks
22:53:07BigBambiWhat frequency?
22:54:07jgsprengerBigBambi: maybe a dumb question... but how do i find freq?
22:54:52BigBambiShow file info from the WPS context menu in Rockbox should tell you - if not, many PC programs will, but where depends on them

23:27:21*Bagder agrees

23:28:59bluebrothertrue, but it already has been accepted.
23:29:03LloreanSo bug report!
23:29:18*bluebrother stresses again his dislike against half-baked solutions
23:29:20linuxstbunaccept it if it's unacceptable...
23:29:45Bagderbluebrother: early commit isn't necessarily half-baked
23:29:59LloreanIt's not like we're providing binaries of it yet.
23:30:18BagderI think working _within_ svn is often better than with patches outside of it
23:30:40*gevaerts points out that it's unfair to blame wpseditor for copying a mechanism used somewhere else in svn
23:31:18bluebrotherBagder: true, but a solution that is doomed to cause problems isn't something that should get committed imo
23:31:37BagderI disagree with that actually
23:31:48Bagderif that's the best we have atm, I think commit is the right thing
23:31:50bluebrotherfeel free to do so ;-)
23:31:51LloreanIf it's doomed to cause problems, but allows further development/testing at the moment, I think it's acceptable.
23:32:10Bagderbut of course, we should always strive at fixing the bad things
23:32:17linuxstbbluebrother: So what's the actual problem? The fact that it's using a script, or that fact that there's a .sh and a bat versions?
23:32:49bluebrotherlinuxstb: the latter.
23:33:12jgsprengeranyone get the same issues with the wma i uploaded?
23:33:18linuxstbI wouldn't call that a problem.
23:33:27bluebrotherbesides, there aren't bat scripts anymore. Since w2k (or even nt4?) it's cmd.

23:35:43linuxstbBagder: Do you know the URLs (if there are any) to access specific download server mirrors?
23:35:48jgsprengeryep.... thats why i tried to get different builds

23:36:36bluebrotherwell, maybe I'm a bit too negatively influenced by how stuff works at work. But usually such solutions only get worked around for much too long
23:36:40jgsprengerthere was an this fix mid august
23:36:41jgsprenger, and
